How Remodeling My Bathroom Helped Me Sell My House

In the sad and depressing time of the real estate market downturn, trying to sell my house was like wading through a river of lava wearing a pair of moccasins- I was getting burned! There were three other houses in my neighborhood that were all up for sale for the same price, but they had been recently remodeled. What was I going to do to make my house stand out among the crowd? I knew that there was one room in my house that could use some updating, so I decided to get in on some Salt Lake City bathroom remodeling.
Renovation or Repair
First thing was first; I needed to decide whether to repair the bathroom I had or completely renovate it. I invited a friend of mine over to take a look at it for me to give me his opinion. He said, “Renovation”, and I said, “Okay”. Apparently there were too many outdated fixtures and the decor was retro- the bad kind- so repair wouldn’t have done anything to increase the worth of the property.
Doing It Myself
Since I was trying to keep things within a tight budget, I decided to do the work of bathroom renovation myself. Sure, I would ask my contractor friend to help out when he could, but I was going to do most of the work myself. I knew a little bit about cabinet re-facing, fixture installation and lighting so I knew I could at least do those things. Due to the confidence in my abilities and ideas, I knew that this Salt Lake City bathroom remodeling project would be a breeze.
It wasn’t- I decided to call a contractor.
It took less than a month to do the work, and I found a great contractor at Homeshow Daily. He was pre-screened and he also had some great design ideas that helped things go smoother; otherwise the renovation would have taken a year rather than just a month. I was very grateful for his services. He was like my renovation guide- my bathroom guru.
The End Result
Once the Salt Lake City bathroom remodeling project was complete, I added, “remodeled bathroom” to my house listing and the calls started coming in. People wanted a bathroom that was brand new, and it showed in the offers I received. People from all over Wasatch and Salt Lake City, Utah were calling and offering above what I had listed originally.
In the end, the Salt Lake City bathroom remodeling was exactly what my home needed to it did- quickly.…

Prepare Your House to Avoid Winter Damage – Roofing

It seems like we just can’t ever get away from home maintenance. If you own your home, you can always plan on preparing it for the summer and winter. It seems like we’re never going to be able to get away from this, so let’s just do it.
One of the most important parts of your home, that need to be prepared for this coming winter, will be your roofing. If your roof isn’t ready for the winner, there is a good chance that your home will suffer. How much it actually sufferers, is going to depend largely upon the condition of your roof.
The best time to check your roof is going to be before it rains or snows. Once the roof becomes damp, it’s going to be difficult to walk on and inspect. The best time to inspect any roof for damage is going to be when the roof is dry. I never recommend going up on a wet roof, without any experience. Even if you’re planning on inspecting a dry roof, you should still be extremely careful.
If you haven’t ever had any problems with your roof and it’s still in good shape, there’s a good chance that you won’t have problems in the near future. The older the roof the more time you should spend inspecting it.
Remember to keep one thing in mind, when you’re inspecting your roof. You’re going to be looking for any types of damage to the roofing, metal flashing, pipes that are protruding out of the roof, gutters and general wear and tear on the roofing shingles.
If any one of these items have any cracks, gaps or any other type of damage, these issues should be addressed to prevent any possible damage from water leaking through your roof, into your attic, through the ceiling and onto your flooring, during the winter months.
The more that you prepare your house for the winter, the better your chances will be for surviving through it. Remember that the roof protects your house and if it isn’t in good shape, you could find yourself dealing with some big problems.
A little preparation goes a long way, especially when it comes to home maintenance.…
